The site of Rock Tung-4 belongs to the Early Paleolithic Ankhe culture with the bifacial industry, which was identified in Vietnam. The excavations at the site were continued in 2017. Cores from excavation units 2 and 3 contained singleplatform single- and double-front cores with natural and prepared striking platforms, as well as double-platform doublefront cores with one prepared and another untreated platform, and radial-type modifications. The tool set is represented by chopping-like artifacts, chopper-like tool, points, pick-like tool, artifacts with partially retouched working surfaces, and a bifacial tool in the form of shark tooth with straight base and slightly curved working edge.
